Overall

I think the surrounding town takes a lot away from what incoming students expect from the college experience, which is not controllable. The school itself, however, could do a better job of stimulating students by spending more on concerts and events. The social life is not stimulating outside of athletics.

Academics

The academics are attractive because there is a low teacher-student ratio, meaning students can meet with teachers easily. The academic rigor of the business school, however, is a joke. I would not recommend the College of Business, where capstone courses don't give out less than a C just for doing all the assignments. Not so in engineering, where academics are renowned.

College Life

Again, I think this is the biggest weakness at Alfred. Campus safety is fine, and athletics draw a lot of support, but clubs and organizations outside of that are not very active. The school simply doesn't spend enough on students' pursuits outside of sports...Honors thesis students (honors students! the ones who are supposed to be heralded and supported doing research at the university!) have only a 50 dollar budget each for their honors thesis. That is pathetic compared to the support AU shows sports teams.
